Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (60 ILCS 1/Art. 195 heading)

60 ILCS 1/195-5

    (60 ILCS 1/195-5)
    Sec. 195-5. Ambulance services special district; tax.
    (a) In any township with a population between 10,000 and 35,000 that lies within a county with a population between 275,000 and 400,000, the township board may provide for ambulance services pursuant to an intergovernmental cooperation agreement with another unit of local government.
    (b) The board may declare the unincorporated area of the township or a portion of that unincorporated area a special ambulance service district for tax purposes. Proof of the declaration authorizes the county clerk to extend a tax upon the special ambulance service district in the amount specified in the annual township tax levy, at a rate of not more than 0.095% of the value of all taxable property in the district as equalized and assessed by the Department of Revenue. No tax may be levied under this Section, however, with respect to any property that is subject to any other tax levied for the purpose of providing ambulance services.
    (c) Any territory of a special ambulance service district that is annexed to a municipality that provides ambulance service within its corporate limits shall be automatically disconnected from the township ambulance service district.
